The payment and value of care quality measures at Rollins Brook Community Hospital evaluate the Medicare spending per beneficiary during an inpatient hospital admission through 30 days after discharge. The following measures are price-standardized and risk-adjusted: payment for heart attack, payment for heart failure patients and payment for pneumonia patients. The measures include patients 65 years or older who were enrolled in Medicare for 12 months prior to their hospitalization and 30 days after admission.

The payment measures include: payment for heart attacks, payment for heart failure patients and payment for pneumonia patients. The value of care combines measures of payment and the patient mortality rate to assess the value of care.

Payment of Care

The payment of care measures add up all payments made to treat medical conditions starting the day the patient is hospitalized and continuing for the next 30 days. Patients admitted for a medical condition like a heart attack, heart failure, or pneumonia might need different tests, treatments, and services. The payment measures include payments made to the hospital, doctors, nurses, hospices and patient co-payments made during this time.

Value of Care

The value of care measures consider the payment amounts and the mortality rates to evaluate the quality of care received. The value of care is evaluated for heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia patients. National benchmarks help patients compare if a hospital’s death rate was better than, no different than, or worse than the national rate. Similarly, patients can compare if a hospital’s payment per condition is less than, no different than, or greater than the national average payment.
